View Full Version : Thillanas

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Topic suggested by Geetha (gyogacha@uk.oracle.com) on Fri Aug 14 15:00:58 .

I'd like to hear comments on these elaborate and often complex pieces. My intention is to discuss Raga(Carnatic and Hindustani) & Tala usage and also Composers and respective beautiful pieces.....One of my favourites is LALGUDI JEYARAMAN'S RAAGESHRI Raga Thillana. this is a Rare Hindustani ragam, exposed in a Fantastic fashion in this piece, I particularly like Sudha Raghunathan's rendition of this. There is also a Madurai Somu piece in this Ragam, 'Ninaikaatha Neramillai Muruga'......Both these pieces are rendered in Carnatic style.

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
I'm also a great fan of Lalgudi's thillanas. His "Dance Of Sound" is a big hit album. Sudha R., Mandolin Srinivas and others regularly render Lalgudi's thillanas.
Apart from D.O.S, I have heard only a few
thillanas of Lalgudi (madhuvanthi,sindhu bairavi,brindavana saranga and a few others.)
I would be very much interested in a vol II of D.O.S.

From other composers, I love Maharajapuram's Misra Sivaranjani and Basanth Bahaar.

BMK's thillanas are apparently famous. Any reviews?

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
I haven't heard of 'D.O.S'.....Is it the orchestral rendering of some of Lalgudi's Thillana's like Pahadi, Mohana Kalyani, Desh e.t.c? If so, I love it(I have a tape with a set of Lalgudi Thillanas, with no explanation of the Album Title).....The Mohana Kalyani one was(maybe is) used in the Radio Ceylon startup music, popularising it no end.

I love the Ragas he's chosen to compose in, Madhuvanthi and Desh have been brought out in thier most pleasing forms in Lalgudi's compositions.

As for Santhanam's Thillanas, they are a pleasure to listen to. His CHARUKESI Thillana is absolutely excellent. The Basanth bahar and Mishra Sivaranjani are also very nice(Laluudi's Mishra Sivaranjani is also very pleasing).

BMK, Mutthiah Bahavathar and TN Seshagopalan have also written very nice Thillanas. You must listen to it, it's excellent. Seshu sings a lot of MB's Thillana's as well as his own....Please try and take a listen of you can, you'll be very impressed. BMK has an album of his very 'tough to sing', complex Thillanas. BMK's Ragamalika Thillanas are particularly fantastic....

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
yes, that is the D.O.S album.

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Rajaraman: The dances of sound album as far as I know is a pretty old one cos I remember listening to a LP of the same or I guess is juat a collection of thillaana's by Lalgudi. But the new cassette released by HMV is good. Infact I like a lot of those esp, Dwijavanthi, Hammeer Kalyani and ofcourse the anytime hit kadhanakudhugalam. These are my favourites of that album.

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
CM: Thanks for that, I'll try and hunt it down....Is it called D.O.S 2? By the way, in the set of LG's Thillana's that I have, the Dwijavanthi is there too. I wonder if the one you are speaking of is a re-mastered collection. Please tell me what else is on this HMV collection. Thanks in advance.

Rajaraman/CM: Have you seen the Lalgudi Compositions book? It has the notation and words of many of his Varnams, Padha Varnams, Kirtanas and Thillanas? It's a really good buy.....

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM

Seshu is a marvellous singer alright. But I dont understand why he insists on composing too. I associate Thillanas a pieces for dance performances. And I have heard Seshu's Thillanas in Huseini and Hameer Kalyani. Neither enjoyable or danceable (if that is the expression you use :-) )

And Lalgudi is really terrific with his thillanas.



30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
The D.O.S I was talking about has:

Mohana Kalyani
Kathana guthoohalam

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Rajaraman: The one u missed out was Hameer Kaylani.
Yes tahts the album I was talking about and released by HMV. Recently when I called home I found that the LP I heard are the collections of Lalgudi but recorded long time back but the contents are pretty much the same.

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Could any of you classical Gurus expound on the Raga called KaiKAVASI?? I heard it over the weekend.. aand BOY! was ut haunting.


30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
A tribute to Lalgudi:

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Seshu's thillana in niroshta is very good. i recently heard it in a Gayathri Girish's concert. Is DOS2 another cd/cassette? i too have the DOS1 and thats really fantastic.

AK: Kaikavasi is srgmpdns - snpmgrs, janya of neetimati. my ref book says thyagaraja composed 'vachama gochara' in this raga.

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Good topic for discussion
I also like Sri Lalgudi's tillanas. I was fortunate to learn the following tillanas in the raga Madhuvanthi, Desh, Kapi and Misra-Sivaranjani. He is imdee a great Mastero.
I would very much like to know if anybody has the recording of Madurai Somu of the song "Madu Meykkum Kanna" in the raga Desh?

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Lalgudi's thillanas are really great.

My favotie one is in "thilang".He's composed thillanas in many rare raagas.

Does anyboy have a list of his "thillanas".

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
lalgudi's thillaana's are more popular and lot easier to follow than BMK 's (IMO - more melodious and classy!!!!)))) (Nado, nandini, narayanan would know what I mean!!)))

Here is what I remember:

Mishra Shivaranjani
Karna Ranjani
Chen Churutti
Yamuna Kalyaani
Mohana Kalyaani
Sindhu Bhairavi
Aanandha Bhairavi
Darbaari Kaanada
Kunthala Varaali

Gosh, he has covered almost all of the beautiful raagas :::))))

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
I beg to differ with you but unless there is another of his books published, he has no compositions in Bindumalini, Chenjuruti, Abheri and Kadanakutuhala. There is a tanavarnam in Nalinakanti 'Nive gatiyani nerata'

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM

I am reasonably sure about all of the above thillaanas. I attended a workshop on Lalgudi's compositions. Some of these thillaanas were mentioned.. I am positive about Kadanakuthuhalam - Aadhi thaala thillaana - I know that piece

I am also sure about Bindumaalini and Aaberi - check out "In the Lalgudi tradition' CD.

also, add Hameer Kalyaani to my list..

Chenjurutti is one that I am not able to recollect well.... but have a strong feeling that I have heard that thillaana - would post when I get some more info on this...


30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Are Thillanas typically in Deshya raagas ? If so , why ? Thanks for comments.

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
not necessarily Nado - but in a concert, thillaana would be included as a "thukkada" and usually the trend is to sing thukkadaas in Deshya (not always) or rakthi or lighter raagas...

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Hi isrgi :-)), are there any Thillanas in any Melakarta ragas ? Muthiah B. may have some, I feel. Do the dance accompanists indulge in these more whole-heartedly ?

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Nado: I am sure there are a whole lot of those.. I am aware of one in Shankarabharanam and one in Kalyani.. lakshman could help us here :)

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
I think the Kathanakuthuhalam thillana is featured in the cassette Dance of Sound.

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
It took some time to cull the information but here is the breakdown of tillanas in melakarta ragas.

Charukesi 2, Kalyani 7, Kharaharapriya 2, Shankarabharana 6, Todi 12, Kamavardhini 4, Shanmukahpriya 2, Vachaspati 1 and Natabhairavi 1. If you or Vasu can give me the beginning words of the tillanas of Lalgudi in Kadanakutuhala, Chenjuruti, Bindumalini, Kuntalavarali and Abheri and their respective talas I can add them to my list. Thanks.

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Thanks Lakshman. It is most striking that [a] there are relatively so few in melas [b] that there are none in the MMGowla and HariKamboji melas [c] or that the lists above do not seem to have any in MMGowla janyas such as Saveri (maybe LGJ has one in this ?? ) or Revagupti.

What is the earliest known Thillana ? Is it the Thillana Mohanambal ? Thanks for comments.

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Lakshman: The Kathanakuthoohalam thillana goes like "thanaDheem jom thadheem"... I have to find out about the toher ones - would post as soon as I find out...

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Hi Isrgi :-)) I am still reconciling to thillanas (sorry ?!). Is their alphabet made up of dance related words or syllables ? e.g. Jonu dheem , udara tani , nadridom etc. Just curious what could be other Lalgudi thillanas in the same raaga. Is there a talam that goes with the tillanas as well ? Thanks for ideas.

Just heard NikelaraDayaradu of (i think ) Vasudevacharya (?? ) in Kadanakutuhalam. Now here was a worthy student of Pattinam.

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
>>"Is their alphabet made up of dance related words or syllables<<" Yes - thillanas were originally composed for dance - and hence the "chol kattus" add beauty to them...

>>"Just curious what could be other Lalgudi thillanas in the same raaga<<" I am not aware of Lagudi composing more than one thillaana in the same raaga nado....

>>"Is there a thaalam<<" there sure is - Thillaanas are meant to exhibit "Footwork"!!

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Brrr.. a bit chilly :-)). I was wondering if 'starting words' were proper identifiers for thillanas, like varnams or krities e.g. 'IdiNiku' or 'Kadaikkan' etc. I also did not find any talams mentioned yet in the thread. Thanks for your patience.

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Of course there are talas for all the tillanas I listed. I just didn't think they were as importanat as the beginning words and the raga. Some people refer to tillanas with the beginning words of the charanam because there is usually some text that is part of the tillana. Talas are extremely important for the dancers because footwork is one of most important aspect of bharatanatya.

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
I wrote above a few days ago >>> are there any Thillanas in any Melakarta ragas ? Muthiah B. may have some, I feel. Do the dance accompanists indulge in these more whole-heartedly ? <<<

Well, seems like I had a brain cramp. Obviously there are talams and footwork associated with the tillanas. I hesitate to ask but is there necessarily a percussion instrument involved ? Thanks

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Sorry if I am being vague...there is a thillana composed by some composer but was tuned by Lalgudi Jayaraman. Can someone clarify which tillana this one is.

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
>>"is there necessarily a percussion instrument involved <<" yes in a concert scenario (A good mridhangist follows the jadis::))

Lakshman, would you mind posting your awesome list of thillaanas here, which would also answer Nado's question in another thread about thillaanas by Shyama Sasthri... :)

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
There are tillanas in Pahadi by both Lalgudi and S.Kalyanaraman. The scale for this raga is: S R G P D P D S; N D P G M G R S N D P D S in mela 29.
Aro/avaro of Padi (mela 15) is S R M P N S; S N P D P M R S.
Bhatiyar: There are three types. The first one belongs to mela 53. There is no karnatak raga resembling this raga. The second variety is in mela 29 and karnataka raga Chayatarangini has some affinity to this raga in many sancharas. The third type is placed under mela 28 and sounds like Sama without the nishada in aroha. Another raga that is close is Balahamsa but the notes r g m s in the avarohana of Balahamsa are not found in Bhatiyari of this type.
I will try to assemble the tillanas and post them later.

Lakshman - that is a very impressive list - thanks a million- great to look at the array of ragas used in thillaanas :)

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Thanks Lakshman. Is the NarayanTirtha Tillana the one reset by Lalgudi ? If not it may be the oldest !

It is quite amazing that Syamasastri who borrowed 'swarajati' ideas from dance does not have a single tillana. Maybe he should have paid more attention to the 'living' Devis and their footwork. Equally odd is that Dharmapuri SI has only one.

But his contemporary (?) Swati Tirunal has quite a few, as well as the Tanjore quartet ! That seems to fit in with the strongly deshya raga choice for the tillanas.

I suppose the 'Simhanandana' tala (MahaVaidyanathIyer begada above ) can be described by dancers in their footwork. Glad to have some information on this. Thanks for comments.

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
In addition to the SyamaSastri anomaly above could you also confirm whether the SwatiTirunal tillana above is in Malunji-Dhanyasi ? I am aware of a raga Malgunji. ( sorry simhananda talam was in kapi , not begada )

Are there any tillanas in raagas with no krities in them ? This Malgunji-Dhanyasi, Hamsalata and KanakaKusumavali are candidates.


30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
I am aware of raga Malguni which is a janya of Kafi thaat (mela 22). The raga Malunji Dhanyasi is what I recorded from a book of Kritis of Svati Tirunal-some 371 of them in english by Gowri Kuppuswamy. It does not give the scales. I am not sure what this raga is. It is definitely not Malgunji.
In Hamsalata one other song I have is Kripa juda samayamamma by Kumari C.Suguna and in Kanakakusumavali there is asong Karunakara sharadi by Tiruvettiyur Tyagayya.

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Lakshman Thanks, Malguni may be some corruption of Malkauns and Phalguni. Malgunji may be non-existent or derived from from Malkunj-Malkauns.

Anyway Lakshman, Isrgi, I am intrigued by this Veenai Shesha Iyer. I assume he is different from Pallavi Seshaiyer and the other great vainika Veenai Seshanna. I culled from Lakshman's list on Thillanas his compositions. They are in Vasanta,Yamunakalyani(2),Vasantamanohari ,Hindola(2) ,Hamsanandi,Kapinarayani ,Hamirkalyani,Behag,Kapi,a Ragamalika,Athana,Shanmukhapriya,Surati,Rageshri,S ohini,Natakuranji,Simhendramadhyam,Jajaivanti,Mish rashivaranjani,Revati,Behag,Basantbahar,Chenjuruti ,Natabhairavi,Bilahari,Kanada which can be seen to strongly favor the Deshya raagas.

But he also has tillanas in the following rare raagas:

Kamalaveni, Lalitangi, Ganaranjani, Sukumari, DipikaVasanta, HamsaNada, HamsaKalyani, HamsaLata, HamsaVinodini, Kanakakusumavali, LalitaManohari, MallikaVasanta. I would not be surprised if some of these are the only krities in these raagas (maybe one or two others max. ).

what is the time (19th century?) in which he lived ? TiruTyg was the son of Vinai Kuppier and this KCSuguna may be of the present. I suspect Veenai Shesha Iyer may be much older. What are his regular krities ? Thanks

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Vinai Shesha Iyer is of course different from Pallavi Shesha Iyer and is very much alive and well in his late 60s. He is an electrical engineer by profession and lives in Chennai and devotes all his time after retirement to music. His compositions number around 400 or so published in 4 volumes. They include Svarajatis, padams, padavarnam, javalis, kritis and tillanas. He has used many rare ragas as you noticed in the tillana list. I will go through the list and pick out some kritis and post them later.

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Lakshman, I hardly know anything about composers like Vinai Seshayyer... Do you think it would be a good idea to start a separate thread and talk about these great "other composers" (make it a point not to talk about the trinity, swathi thirunaal, purandara daasar etc ::))) - I am sure your info about them would be helpful to most of us here ... your comments please :)

Nado narayanan - interested? or may be you guys already know about these people ::))

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
...and who is Nado narayanan ??
Just Kidding :::::::))))))))

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
I have no problems with starting a new thread on contemporary composers. They too deserve our attention. I checked on Vinai Shesha Iyer's compositions and they are only about 200- not 400 as I said earlier. However he has used ragas like Basantbahar, Dipikavasanta, Hamsakalyani, Hamsalata, Hemant, Jyotishmati, Kamalaveni, Kanakakusumavali, Lalitamanohari, Mallikavasanta, Pranavapriya, Puriadhanashri and sukumari.

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
thanks Lakshman - looking forward to your contributions ::))

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
tit for tat Narayanan :(((

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Actually Lakshman had mentioned Veenai Shesha Iyer as a comtemporary 20th century composer in another thread. What are the raagas Kamalaveni and Hamsalata ?

also the NarayanTirtha tillana ? Is that his or was it reset ? I still can't figure out why SyamaSastri doesnt have any tillanas. He borrowed so much from dance otherwise.

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Kamalaveni is from mela 56 and uses S R M P D N S; S N D P M R S as its notes. Hamsalata is a janya of Latangi and has the scale: S R G P N S; S N D P M G R S.

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
I am not sure Narayana Tirtha had composed a tillana (Begada) even though it is on my list. I don;t know where I got the entry from. I am now in the process of listing all the references for my song titles and eventually I can pinpoint the source. There will probably be a long wait though.

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Can a vocalist include 'thillana' type phrases 'dhika, dhim etc. ' into a kriti , say during 'neraval' etc. ? Are there krities with such 'thillana' phrases either set up by the composer ( somewhat like 'chittaswaras') or performed extempore by the vocalist ?

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
I don't know if a singer can introduce solkattu svaras into a niraval or not. Maybe a peforming artist like Nandini can answer that question. But there are many compositions of Uttukadu Venkatasubbier that use such svaras as part of the song. I will find one as a sample and post it later.

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Here is the song that I promised. It does not have a charana.

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Lakshman, thanks ! Is there a Swati Tirunal piece Aaj Aaye Shyam etc. which may also have similar 'svaras' ? I think I heard BMK and wasn't sure what was going on.

In any case it is a very interesting construction. Thanks.

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
>>"Can a vocalist include 'thillana' type phrases 'dhika, dhim etc. ' into a kriti , say during 'neraval' etc. ?<<" No unless you happen to be a student of "u know who!" :::))

>>"Are there krities with such 'thillana' phrases either set up by the composer ( somewhat like 'chittaswaras')"<< Yes - for example - Sri Mahaabala Giri - A Muthaiyya Bhaagavathar composition has a beautiful chittaswaram using cholkattus - it goes something like "pa dha pa dha ma dha ka jam ri sa ni sa tha dhim mi thari thana..."" Another example in a song is "Bho Shambo Shiva Shambo swayambho" - it uses cholkattu...

Gopalakrishna Bharathi'songs have these kind of thillaana jadis... for example - Natanam Aadinaar in maayamaalava Gowlai (Tha dhim thadhim Januthaka dhimitha.....)

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Isrsgi I am already rocking and rolling, dhikadhimitakajana... :-)) thanks

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
>>"Are there krities with such 'thillana' phrases either set up by the composer ( somewhat like 'chittaswaras')"<<

The foll. MD krithis have such thillana phrases

Ananda natana Prakasam - Kedaram
Visaalakshi - Kasiramakriya
Vallabha(A) Naayakasya - begada

In the Oothukkadu krithi "Natavara Tharuni" - Kannada Gowla, the charanam starts like this
"ki ta jam thari kita dheem thari thaa
thaka kita thom.. thaka dhimi nanda sunandana..."

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Thanks Narayanan, Isn't it true that many musicians ignore the 'chittaswaras' in the MD Begada. Can you please post these swaras or 'thillana' phrases for the Begada and Kamavardhani ? Thanks

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
There is a song Aj AyE shyAm by Svati Tirunal.

rAgA: yamunAkalyANi. ATa tALA.

sthAyi: Aj AyE shyAm mOhan rAsamaNDal khElanE
antara 1: bAnsuri kI lAgE tAn tanan natOn tano

2: nAc rahE gOri tAn tiyA tai tai tai takaritO

4: padmanAbh tumhAri lIlA kyA kahun mai sAvarO
tAp sankaT sharanE AyA sO hamAri tum harO (Aj)

It is interesting to note thet the last line of the last antara has exactly the same wording as the last line of the Dhanashri tillana.

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM

Visalakshi - Kamavardhini - Misra Chapu

Thaiya Thakita | Ni dha pa ma| dhi mi pa da||
ni sa jam thari| tha dheem gi na thom pa ma||
dhimi thaki ta ga| ma pa ma pa dha tha ja nu||
dha ri sa ni ri sa |kumtha tha thi gi na thom||

It is true that the chittai swarams for Vallabha is not sung always.

Vallabhaa - Begada - Roopakam

Chittai (jathi) swaram for this is

dheem thaki ta jam ga ma ri|| ga thari kita jom thana tha ||
dhimi tha pa tha thathim gina thom ||dhimi tha pa tha thathim gina thom

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Thanks Narayanan. Regarding the vallabha/A that 'S' has vanished. Is there any info. on the particular temple involved with this MD begada ?

Thanks Lakshman, I guess BMK was not messing around with the lyric. Now why did I think that ??

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
... may be some temple near Kanchipuram...as the Charanam has "pallava pada" in it.

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Not so fast :-) - the vanishing part I mean .... I'll check and let u know if I can find more info ...

Rgd solkattu-s cum chittai swara-s in MD kritis, I can readily think of srImahAgaNapatiravatumAm ( gowLa ) in addn to the 3 aforementioned ones.

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Does KanjadalaayaDakshi in KmlMnhri also have this ? Thanks

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
The version of kanjadalayadakshi I have learnt does not. However, I remember hearing a recording of Dr N Ramani where he seems to play perhaps a chittai swara passage after the madhyama kala of the charanam.

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Thanks S. Could you or some one please post the lyric for SriMahaganapathy- MD's Gowla including the 'chittaswaras' of MD , not any new, neraval type concoctions ? Same for other MD or SyamaSastri krities ? Thanks

It seems like these are optional and this can lead to some modification of the krities. I am not sure if some of the books list all these details properly. Thanks in advance :-)).

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Nado: another good example of jadi in chittaswaram is in Muthaiya Bhagavathar's Dharu - Maathe Malayadhwaja Paandya in Khamaas - it has swaram, jadhi and saahithyam in its chittaswarm - truly a master piece :)

A few other songs:
Sri Ganapathi - charanam - "thalaangu mani"
Aanandha Nadamaaduvaar - "Thajam thakajam..."
Idadhu padham - "Dhimi thaka tharikitathom.."
Kunjitha paadhathai 9panthuvaraali) - "janutha thaka Janutha dhimi..."

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
and also oothukaadu's kuzhaloodhi manam - "Thagu migu ena oru padham paada thakitta thadhimi ena nadam aada..""

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Your mentioning of OVS's kuzhaloodi reminds me of a recent CD by sudha on OVS songs, most of the songs are in this pattern. except for the "light-music" type of sound-bits in between the CD is good.

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
I have that CD Vasu - I like it and as you have pointed out, would have been much better without the orchestration ::))

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Hi, Isrsgi :-)) Is that kuzhaloodi in Kamboji ? I think I heard it somewhere on the web. Will try and get TNS to do the HMB Khamaas if I can get his schedule etc.

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Nado - that CD by Sudha is worth investing money in - decent rendition of OVS songs - it is in Khamboji :)

Maathe is a must hear piece Nado - do pester TNS ::))) (am sure he would oblige to a request for MB song ::))

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Yep. Sudha's CD is worth it inspite of "orchestration" as IR corrected me. The Ataana kriti "Madhura madhura venu gaanam" is awesome. I have this same kriti by USrinivas also and its really good.

Unnikrishnan has a few cassettes with this kind of orchestration in the background of what would otherwise be a "pure" carnatic, which after buying the first one and terribly disappointed, I was always afraid to buy his, unless i was fully sure.

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
these days I find it irritating to buy a CD and then realize that it is one of those "commercially pleasing" albums :((

Vasu, you are right about Unni... I hate to listen to those kind of CD's .... it to me sounds like should be played while whale-watching :::)))

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
I believe these orchestras also were used during BMK's rendering of some Bhadrachala Ramdas and PDasa krities. Bombay sisters may also have tried the same. Maybe Lakshman can help by posting the luric for the BhadrachalaRamdas YadukulaKamboji, PahiRama SriRamayante, if he has it. I was trying to see if there were some SantaClaus-like ho-ho-ho's which are intrinsic or introduced by BMK.

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Nado :

Here is some more info on temples, ganesa kritis etc. ( Beware, a long post ) ...

Firstly, vallabhAbAyakasya ( begada ) is associated with Tiruvarur, and is a Tiruvarur Shodasa ganapati kriti ( TSG, henceforth ! )

Secondly, I found reference to vallabhA in two more kritis ( apart from begada, athana and bilahari already talked of earlier in another thread ) - these are 'vallabhApatE' ( mahAgaNapatE, naTanArAyaNi ), 'vallabhAsamEtam' ( s'vEtagaNapatim, rAgachUDamaNi )

Thirdly, I have listed some kritis on ganapati by MD, with the raga and temple.

Uchhishta ganapatou : Kashiramakriya, TSG
Ekadantam : Bilahari, Madurai
Gajananayitam : Vegavahini, Trichy
Gananayakam : Rudrapriya ( now being sung by most in purnashadjam ), TSG
Ganarajena : Arabhi, TSG
Ganesakumara : Janjhuti, TSG
Karikalabha : Saveri, Mayavaram
Panchamatangamukha : Malahari, TSG
Mahaganapatim : Nattai, TSG
Mahaganapatim : Todi, TSG
Mahaganapate : Natanarayani, TSG
Raktaganapatim : Mohanam, TVM
Lambodaraya : Varali, Tirunelveli
Vallabhanayakasya : Begada, TSG
Vatapiganapatim : Hamsadhwani, TSG
Vamangasthita : Athana, ??
Vinayaka : Vegavahini, Kanchi
Saktisahita : Sankarabharanam, ??
Svetaganapatim : Ragachoodamani, Tanjavur
Siddhivinayakam : Chamaram, TSG
Hastivadanaya : Navaroj, TSG
Sreegananatham : Easamanohari, ??
Sreeganesatparam : Ardradesi, Vaideeswarankoil
Srimahaganapatiravatumam : Gowla, TSG
Srimooladhara : Sri, TSG

Most of the above material has been culled from Veena Sundaram Iyer's "Red" book.

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Still doesn't explain what is the devi in VallabhaNayaka, S, or how/why Ganapati/pate should be considered as a consort to this devi.

Note that There are other MD krities which use vallabha, e.g. pranavallabhe, gopijanavallabha etc. Lalita sahasranam/trishati doesn't make reference to any vallabha, only someone called the composite 'svadhinavallabha' .

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM

I do not know the story of vallabhA - shall enquire if some independent work ( non MD, possibly even non-musical ! ) has reference to this lady !

However, the meanings to some of the kritis in Sundaram Iyer's book in tamil do talk of vallabhaadevi.

BTW, I was citing references to ganesa kritis with a reference to vallabhA, such as vallabhApatE, vallabhAsamEtam etc - other occurences of the word in MD do exist ...

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
S, The Tiruvarur temple doesn't view Ganapati with a consort just like the MahaVallabhaGanapati or VallabhaGananayak temples. The Buddhi-rddhi twin consorts view is held elsewhere where MD may have visited but I doubt it. Like I said LalitaSahasranam/Trishati make no reference to just vallabha, actually much longer names.

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Ananda Natana Prakasam - Kedaram has a beautiful Jathiswaram at the end...

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Narayanan, can you or anyone else clarify what the MD Kedaram jatiswaras are ? Should/Shouldn't they be exactly specified ? One version is this:
pa .. ni ni sa ta ka
ja nu ta sa ni ni ..
jam . ta ri ta sa ma
ga ma pa .. ni ma ga
ta ka na ta ka ma ga
ma ma pa sa ni ni ..
ta jam . ta ri pa ..
ma ga ta din gi na tOm

The DKP rendering on the Sivakumar site appears to be slightly different ! Also such swaras appear to be dropped entirely in some renderings or even used where nothing is prescribed. What is the story with this ? Thanks

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Parvati Kumaram - Katakurinji - Roopakam has a jathiswaram

Thaj janu thaka ni sa ni dha ma|| pa ga ri sa ni dha thaku thari kita||
thaka thaka thaka janu thaka thari|| kita thaka ni sa ri ga matha ja nu

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
DKP's version of Ananda natana ? I have not heard DKP sing this krithi. Could you post the URL

DKJ sings the version of Jathiswaram posted by you.

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Oooooops... Natakurinji and not Katakurinji...

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Narayanan, sorry, I meant to type DKJ ! It is the Sivakumar site version. It doesn't match exactly what I had posted, wasn't sure about that. At least one phrase 'ta ja nu ta ka' is different. Also in the SwaraBhushani - PanchBhutalinga tape. Thanks

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
The exact jathi swaram is as below.
pa .. ni ni sa ta ka
ja nu ta sa ni ni ..
jam . ta ri ta sa ma
ga ma pa .. ni ma ga
ta ja nu ta ka ma ga
ma ma pa sa ni ni ..
ta jam . ta ri pa ..

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
There is a Dhanashri thillana played by Lalgudi. Who is the composer of this song

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
the popular Dhanasri thillaana is by Swathi thirunaal - am not sure if this is what you heard :)

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
he also has a thillaana of his own in Dhanasri/aaberi/bhimplaas :)

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
Thanks IR for the info.

Is there any definition for Thillanas that they start with "solkattus". Most rather all of the thillanas I have heard start only with Solkattus except for one thillana (i do not know the composer for this one too..)

Ni ri ni ri Ga ma ga ri sa
ni gama da ma ga ri ma ga ri sa

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
that is a beautiful thillaana in Poorvi and who else could render it better than KVN ::::::))))))))

It is by Sri T. Vaidhyanatha Iyer in Roopaka Thaalam...

Thillaanas are mainly dance pieces and hence they mostly (as you observe) they start with jadis ...

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
My favourite Thillana though is the Chenchurutti Thillana "Dhira naa Thana Dheem tha ".
Have heard an OLD tape (1950s) of Semmangudi.. so vibrant and scintillating.

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
That Chenchurutti thillana is in a recent CD release by RPG "Divine Unision" by Semmangudi/ MSS. The 2CD is worth all the money, has some of the wonderful pieces, esp the Kharaharapriya "Rama nee samanam evaru", "Teliyaledu rama" (Dhenuka) etc.

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
I found this Thillana with Thrukkural Phrases in the Web.
Lalitha Panchamam/Adi/A S Panchapakesa Iyer
Pallavi: Dheem deemthanana dirana deemtha dirana
thana dirana dirana thillana
Thadara thani thaku jeku thakajanu
thom thanjuthom januthom thajanu

Anupallavi: Thadrumi thakita danida maga drumikita
Tham deem thom nisarigama da ni
Nathrutha deem magarisani thomdruthadeem
Thathiginathom thillana thathigina thom thadinginathom

Charanam: Agara mudala ezuthellam
Adi bhagvan mudatre ulagu
Piravip perunkadal needuvaar neendar
Irai vanadi serardar

30th January 2005, 10:46 AM
This is a query to Lakshmanan who posted the impressive list of thillanas. I am a fanatic collector of Lalgudi thillanas and I have quite a few of them. Do you have recordings of all the Lalgudi Thillanas you have listed? If so, would you be willing to share them?

Please please let me know..My name is Vinod Menon. my e-mail is pvk@cise.ufl.edu

Thanks so much!!

i've heard two versions of this one - first is the MS-semmangudi combo, and then the more vigorous rendering of TM Krishna. i found both equally appealing.

10th March 2005, 10:33 PM
another request for lyrics -

"Jambupathe" - the dikshitar krithi in yamunakalyani

have been a big fan of this one ever since i heard it sung by DKJ as part of his collection of panchalinga kshetra krithis - a collection which also includes the evergreen "Ananda Natana Prakasham" in Kedaram.

anyone with the lyrics of the yamunakalyani song, please post.
